Angels

They’re just a mistype, really

because I always write angels

when I mean angles

and no matter what Da Vinci says

there’s nothing divine about maths

 

The first angel I ever saw was Michael

eating cereal with milk all over his face

I think the next one was Emma Thompson

she was a sexy angel though and I’m pretty sure they’re not really meant to be like that

 

I had a friend who said

her mother was saved by angels

who told her to stop her bike

before she rode it in front of a truck

 

And wasn’t Lucifer an angel

before he was kicked out of Heaven?

that’s hardly indicative of

angelic behaviour

 

The only angels I know personally

gaurd churches with blank stone eyes

that follow me when I walk by

and judge me for not walking in

 

So maybe they’re

 

cereal-

 

slurping

 

sexy

 

satanic

 

staring

 

saviours

 

or maybe they’re

 

just

 

a mistype
